This is a graphic organizer in the shape of a house. There is a place for the main idea, 4 details to support the main idea, and a place for a conclusion. It works very well with non-fiction paragraphs, as well as short reports for the beginning writer. The organizer really helps the student to help see her paragraph take shape and the student can start to integrate this organized thought process into her writing, even when the graphic organizer is not available.
